Greetings,
I'm about to realize a Chewbacca, A New Hope version, and first of all I need to know the exact color(s) of the fur. I have some samples that I wish to show you:

I've placed a number to identify each sample, would you take a look and tell me what combination is the best?
Many thanks!

For my Chewie, my brown was a mix of three colors. #27 and #6 in equal amounts and a bit of grey (#51) thrown in for good measure. For the grey I had a 50/50 mix of #51 and #6.

Here is a tutorial on making and using a hackle to mix hair.

Welcome! My Chewie is also 27 and 6 with 4 and 44, but I've more recently been using an equal mix of 27 and M4/27 for the reddish brown instead of the 6.
